Donald J. Trump claimed he’ll win a lawsuit alleging his namesake real-estate school swindled students as documents unsealed in a related racketeering case showed the hard sell given hesitant prospects.
Trump University team members were told to answer a prospective student’s first excuse for not signing up, but to jump in before a second one. “Say, ‘Stop!!!’ It’s my job to get you to the next level,” according to one of the scripts in the school’s so-called sales playbook. “You will never get ahead in life with excuses. Mr. Trump won’t listen to excuses and neither will we.”
